Adidas says it plans to sell remaining Yeezy sneakers.

On Monday (Feb. 26.), Kanye West hopped on Instagram calling out Adidas once again after the apparel giant has moved forward with releasing what he calls “fake” Yeezy 350s, which the rapper claims are an unapproved design.

While insisting that his fans don’t purchase any of their Yeezy-inspired products.

“Let me explain really clear to you guys what’s happening with adidas,” he began in an Instagram clip. “Not only are they putting out fake colorways that are not approved, they’re suing me for $250,000,000 and they’re also not paying me for these shoes that they’re putting out that have my name on it.

“They’re using contract clauses and 50 years of business experience to rape an artist — one of ya’ll favorite artist — right in front of ya’ll, in broad daylight.”

Snoop Dogg even hopped in the comments section of the above post to show his support with: “Speak ya truth [thumbs-up emoji, bicep-flex emoji].”

In another post, he screenshot a 350 V2 shoe listing on the adidas IG page and captioned it: “Anybody who loves Ye would not buy these fake Yeezys I never made these color ways I’m not getting paid off of them and adidas is suing me.

“All these celebrities and the public will stand against a T shirt or the color of my hat but when yall see me have my children hidden from me or see an actual Fortune 500 company rape one of your heroes in real life don’t nobody say nothing or do nothing.”

Ye concluded: “As far as the system goes What yall gone do now Take my album down again Freeze my accounts again Threaten people to not work with me again All the new non approved 350’s are cooorny.”

The clothing brand announced the sale of Yeezy inventory on Feb. 26.
